Help Please....Does anyone know what Aqueous cream's called?

Postby sal » Wed 12 Apr 2006 16:40 GMT

:( I am currently waiting for my spousel application to be processed, and although I am excited at the prospect of our new life in Canada, I am having problems finding reference to "aqueous cream" on any Canadian pharmacy site. For those who don't know, it is a very cheap emollient cream, that I use to wash and moisterise with, as I am allergic to any kind of soap, ( around £3.00 for 500g)
It contains emulsifying ointment 30% ( liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin, cetostearyl alcohol,sodium lauryl sulphate and purified water.)
I have found other similar branded creams, that have other ingredients added, and cost alot more money. I would love to know if anyone with a mild excema problem has any ideas where to find aqueous cream, what it is called in Canada, or of any alternatives that I may use instead....Or else the only care parcels I shall be recieving for Christmas and birthdays, will be tubs of the stuff!
Thankyou in advance for any help in this matter anyone may be able to give!
Sal.

Hi,

Sorry I couldn't find an answer to your question, but these sites may be worth looking at (if you haven't come across them already) & you should be able to email them for advice.

Hope you manage to find the information you need.

Best wishes,

Hilary

What about Aquaphor cream?

I'm not sure if it's exactly the same thing though?

Aquaphor Ingredients:

Aqueous Cream

Hi Sal, I do in fact know what you are talking about. I tried to contact you but you have no info in your profile. I get this for my nephew in Toronto. You can find it in some Shoppers Drug Marts in Canada, but only on the west coast. I live in Vancouver and pick it up from the Davie Street location and mail it to him on the east coast. Hope this helps. GC
